I suppose the reason my wife and I were reluctant to visit Paddy Long's Beer & Bacon Pub is because it emphasizes bacon, bacon, bacon on its menu. And my doctor has ordered me not to eat bacon, bacon, bacon. But I checked the menu and discovered it is filled with delicious alternatives and since Paddy Long's is relatively close... More

We were excited to try the legendary bacon bomb - stemming from a missed opportunity at last year's Chicago bacon-fest. We squeezed into the cramped quarters, excited to peruse the menu for an appetizer. We settled on the bacon-wrapped dates. They were fine but the bacon was so fatty I couldn't even eat one of the dates I had lest... More

My husband wanted to come here after seeing the bacon bomb on the travel channel. We stopped in for lunch while traveling in Chicago. Beer list was nice. Loved the witte. The fried pickle spears were delicious. He went for the bacon board, and tried 4 kinds of bacon with toast, mustard and gerkins. He loved the bacon board. We... More

Went there for the beer and bacon tasting that's held each weekend. Lived up to all the hype! The beer selection was good and the bacon was outstanding. Don't be deterred by $35 price, the amount of beer and bacon is generous. Staff was very friendly. Will definately go back for more bacon and beer.

A great place to have a few beers and some amazing bacon appetizers!! They had a great craft beer list and a cool pub/neighborhood bar vibe. I ordered the Bomb sandwich which was good but not great.. I would definitely go back for beers and bacon centric appetizers!!

Any place that serves beer AND specializes in bacon is a winner in my book. Visited with the Beer Experience walking tour, loved this place. I will definitely plan a visit back here next time I visit Chicago.

Great laid back place for beer. It's worth the trip from central Chicago. They have a wide selection of beers, both in bottle and on tap, and the prices are good. We came here to try the legendary bacon and it didn't disappoint. I had the beer battered bacon - I'm not sure what I was expecting, but it wasn't... More

The fries could have been better, but they have great food and an authentic pub vibe. The list for draft beers is longer than most restaurants in the area. I loved that the owner was from my alma mater in Chicago, Loyola University. I am very curious to find out what the story is behind the "Irish curry sauce"... The... More

After walking 6 miles around the city, this place was a oasis in the middle of a quaint neighborhood. I'd pretty much hang there regularly if I lived in Chicago. Great local pub atmosphere and friendly service.

Can't really comment on beer selection or full menu as I just shared a couple apps with friends and I was not drinking. The bacon grenades and fried pickles were fantastic. Service was prompt!
